The award is given to governmental organizations that utilize technology to improve services provided to the public.

The City of West Palm Beach Information Technology Department GIS Division has been awarded the prestigious “Innovative Use of Technology to Service the Public” Achievement Award from the Florida Local Government Information Systems Association (FLGISA) at its annual conference.  The award is given to governmental organizations that utilize technology to improve services provided to the public.  The City was awarded this honor for its innovative use of a Geographic Information Systems web application to provide the public real time information related to its Capital Improvement Projects (CIPs).  The application allows for members of the public to locate CIPs on an online map and view information such as funding source, project status, project manager, budget, project schedule and photos of the project. 

  

“I am very proud of the City of West Palm Beach Information Technology Department GIS Division for achieving this recognition and for serving the public with excellence each and every day,” said West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio. “At the City, we are dedicated to improving transparency and expanding access to information, and the CIP portal created by the GIS Division does exactly that!

“I am extremely proud of the innovative solutions developed by our GIS Team,” said Christine Brevik, City of West Palm Beach Chief Technology Officer. “Our technology teams continue to partner with our City Departments to provide useful tools and information for our citizens.  It is a great honor to be recognized by FLGISA for our innovation and service to the public.”
